Jew in the City

This week's New York Jewish Week featured an article about a new website, entitled Jew in the City. It's run by an intelligent and talented young woman, Allison Josephs, who has set herself a very difficult challenge: portraying Modern Orthodoxy in an intelligent and engaging fashion.
One could quibble about certain 'facts' or interpretations. Over all, her observations and videos are refreshing for their enthusiasm, strength of conviction and wonderful sense of humor, and I wish her continued success and an ever growing following.

This video is my favorite.

I think the Stender parable is much better than this one...

It's a perfect analogy for her audience, who may not get what "learning" is.
